Bargain Gamer: NISA Publisher & Sale of the Dead Week 2

This week, I’m taking a look at the PS Store’s NISA Publisher Sale, as well as the new additions to the Sale of the Dead.

NISA Publisher Sale

If you’re not familiar with NIS, it’s the Japanese game developer/publisher most known for Disgaea.  Their North American branch, NISA, was responsible for localizing many other Japanese games such as Persona 4 Golden, Trails of Cold Steel, Danganronpa, and Etrian Odyssey.

disgaea 5

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance $15.99/$19.99 (Retail $39.99)

For fans of SRPGs, this installment, along with most of the other entries in the series, are on sale.  This series is known for the countless hours spent grinding and min/maxing your units.  The sky is limitless for upgrading your character, whether it be exploiting stats, gear, or abilities.  Eventually you’ll wind up with an OP squad of your own.

danganronpa 3

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony $44.99/$50.99 (Retail $59.99)

If you’re not familiar with this visual novel series,  it’s basically a cross between Battle Royale and the Ace Attorney series.  A group of high school students are placed in a murder game,  and you’re tasked with investigating and solving these murders in class trials.  I’m surprised that this game is already on sale since it came out last month, so it’s a great deal if you’re can’t wait to see how it all unfolds.  If it’s not on your priority list, I bet it’ll go on sale again later at the same price or lower.

For those curious about the first two games, the Reload 1-2 bundle is 40% off (though I’ve seen it as low as 50% off).  And for all 10 people still using their PS VITA, the portable versions are also on sale.

Sale of the Dead Week 2

For the second week of this sale, Sony simply added some games to the discounted list.

xcom2

XCOM 2 $23.99/$29.99 (Retail $59.99)

The sequel to 2012’s tactical strategy game will have you developing your strike team, watching them get slaughtered, then training a new batch of recruits to take their place.  The digital deluxe edition, which contains a few add-on packs (but not the expansion) is also on sale.  Not a bad price for a game just over a year old.

diablo 3

Diablo III: Eternal Collection $35.99/$41.99 (Retail $59.99)

This bundle includes all expansions, including the Necromancer pack.  A good chance to start grinding for rare drops if you haven’t gotten to yet.  But if you’re able to play it on PC, there’s probably a cheaper deal if you wait for a Steam sale.

Honorable Mentions

Psychonauts $2.49/$3.49 (Retail $9.99)

Detention $9.09/$10.39 (Retail $12.99)

Grand Theft Auto V $29.99/$35.99 (Retail $59.99)

 

Both sales go until the morning of Halloween, so be sure to check it out!
